in florida, with senator marco rubio, paul ryan's bus tour is crisscrossing ohio. president obama visits new hampshire this afternoon. and vice president biden will attend a rally in lynchburg, virginia. let's get right to it. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house. good saturday morning to you. >> hi, alex. >> first before we get to this president's trip north. is tropical storm sandy affecting any of the white house plans? >> it certainly is. you've heard this phrase, we're familiar with it, an abundance of caution. that's what you're seeing from some of the campaigns today. vice president biden was set to appear in virginia beach right along the coastline with his wife dr. jill biden and son beau biden. that event has been canceled. meanwhile michelle obama, the first lady, was due in new hampshire on tuesday. out of again abundance of caution they have canceled, postponed that event. mitt romney was due in virginia beach where joe biden was supposed to be today. they postponed that event. they've altered their schedules. they're going to be appearing elsewhere. you mentio
a dead even race in ohio. five points for obama. when they last tested here a number of weeks ago. shows momentum on romney side. the question is does he have momentum to push him perhaps 270. >> bret: quick answer of impact of the storm, hurricane sandy and what it means for the race? >> could it mean -- i think it's freezing the race. it's hard for either romney or obama to break through with new, with some new initiative while everybody is focused on sandy. i don't think it affects the turnout. >> bret: karl? >> it could effect turn-out. people affected by this; particularly, people unable to cope with it might be less likely to turn out. let's see when the storm hits. when it passes. if people can put themselves back together. the other thing is it will push the campaigning further west. we will see more appearances in iowa, colorado, nevada, wisconsin, western ohio than we would have seen otherwise in fewer appearances and florida. fewer appearances in places like virginia and pennsylvania. eastern ohio. >> bret: last thing, quickly. we had an ipad app that people can put in their m
been canceled and even president obama isn't going to ohio tomorrow. he's going to let bill clinton, the former president campaign for him in youngstown, ohio instead. it looks like mitt romney is going to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the pres
points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly, when you poll, you take a political affiliation of people you call. as mr. rove just told us on his little board, his little white board he takes everywhere they poll more democrats in each of the three swing states than republicans. all right? but the folks don't know that because the "new york times" doesn't put that in the headline. so, my question to you is, do
times" poll out today shows president obama doing very well in florida, ohio, virginia. dick morris going to have thoughts on that later. but, do you take that poll seriously? >> no, i don't take those three polls seriously. here is why. in florida, they have obama ahead by 1 point. they have seven points more democrats than republicans. even in 2008 there were only 3 points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in .008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated this time around than they were. secondly
this point forward until election day. ohio and wisconsin are clearly part of president obama's midwestern firewall, if you will, trying to make sure that mitt romney does not have a path to get to 260 electoral votes. so expect to see the president here and two other stops later today and having key surrogates try to make sure the buckeye state is in his column on election day. out on the stump we've heard the president in his closing argument essentially make the point that mitt romney would be a rubber stamp for the right wing and here is a little bit more of what the president had to say last night in boulder, colorado. >> so we've made real progress these past four years, but colorado, we all know our work is not yet done. >> that's kind of the tone of the closing argument the obama campaign is making is that we've made some progress, but it's not time to turn back yet. so essentially asking the voters for another four years. >> steve: meanwhile what, is governor romney saying in the final days to convince people, hey, let's get a new guy in there? >> well, obviously both campaigns ar
importantly ohio, of course? >> you march across the battlegrounds, and you are seeing a president obama edge, including in ohio where as we talked about, 50% plus in polling. over and over again we see an edge for president obama in mitt romney's must-win state of ohio. so we're going to see the candidates spend a lot of time up there in the upper midwest. ohio will get a ton of attention from both candidates. president obama knowing that's a place where he can stop mitt romney cold. so you look at this map right now, and you can continue to have to say president obama has the edge. >> we're hearing that mitt romney is going to pennsylvania. most people would say, why spend time there? i mean that clearly is joe biden's backyard. >> maybe this is the head fake, a bit of a hail mary for the romney campaign. the intriguing thing is the obama campaign is responding with advertising in those states. they're not sending the president there directly, although, bill clinton is spending time in minnesota and joe biden, son of scranton, will be in pennsylvania before this is out. >> very interesting
. >> i can tell you, we pulled ohio last week. and i looked at the two polls that had obama plus 4. i don't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the
wall. >> he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio. the obama campaign said they're ahead in iowa right now, this could make some difference in the end and it reinforces the argument that romney is making. he's best positioned to make the bipartisan compromises. >> george stephanopoulos, thank you. george stephanopoulos has a huge show this morning, his guests include stephanie cutter from the obama campaign and the former house speaker newt gingrich. >>> other top stories. >> there's other news. >>> good morning, everyone. another potential attack on a u.s. embassy may have be thwarted. 11 people have been arrested on atta attacks, including the american embassy in jakarta. >>> new details on the tragic story of the new york city nanny who allegedly killed two young children, family and friends of that nanny that she had been unraveling in recent months. ortega is still in the hospital with self-inflicted knife wounds >>> the young man known as the victim number one in the jerry sandusky sexual abuse scandal is speaking out on bullying. he was trying to help to put an end to bullying a
more frayed. >>> four days to go, president obama arrives in ohio overnight and governor romney heads there as well as both camps brace for this morning's all-important jobs report and the impact of sandy looms large over election day. >>> and walk this way. new yorkers in need of a lift are about to get one on our plaza. the countdown has begun for aerosmith's first ever morning show concert today, friday, november 2nd, 2012. >>> from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lauer. >> good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. this has been a hard week around here, but it's nice to have something to smile about this morning. aerosmith here on the plaza. >> a confession, i walked outside a second ago as they were rehearsing to see steve tyler behind a microphotograph and joe perry walking up and down the stage. this is just a destruction. the death toll from sandy has risen to more than 90 people. there's a lot of talk about the situation in new yor
, a vital state, they have it tied at 49. but the university of cincinnati has obama leading by 2 in ohio, 48-46. colorado, they have romney up by 3. 50-47. but a cnn poll has 50-48, obama. nevada, all the polls have the president lead bug it is close. same thing in wisconsin. president is ahead in all the polls except rasmussen, who has the race tied at 49. florida, all the policy out this week has obama leading romney, but very close. and in the commonwealth, up 5 points but cbs has the president up by two. north carolina, rasmussen has romney up by 6 and survey usa has the governor leading by 5. new hampshire, new england college has obama up by 6 over mitt romney. last week rasmussen had romney up by 2. and nbc has the president up by 6 points. got all that? joining us now from boston, david. he directs polling. >> he want to run it down from your point of view. you have canvassed the whole country, know what's going on. ohio, how do you see it? >> i see it really close. if you look at the last four polls, it's one point. 1 through 8 the poll was average four to five points. what we l
of people being targeted by both campaigns in ohio, undecided women. the latest fox poll in ohio shows obama holds a significant lead but the romney campaign believes it is gaining ground. mike tobin in columbus with more. >> a solid majority of the coveted undecided vote in ohio is women. no voter is microtargetted more aggressively. >> our voice matters and we do count as women and our opinion and our role is held high. >> i have seen a lot that has to do with abortion. a lot that seem to it deal with equal pay and that really speaks out to me. >> which do you believe. >> obama supporters hit hard on the concept that a romney win would threaten healthcare and remove women's choices. >> overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood. we will get hid of that. >> and linked mitt romney to the controversial statements about rape and abortion made by todd akin and richard murdoch. >> that it is something that god intended to happen. >> because they are provocative and extreme they are getting attention of the women voters. >> conservatives operating with the strategy that women voters care about the
of break away for president obama tonight is a lead of four in ohio. you can't go to the bank with a leader for. that is one of the bitterly is that we have. otherwise one or two points in virginia. gerri: let me give you a couple of points here. ohio, romney has in its 50-48. florida, romney 50, obama 49. north carolina -- neck and neck. so ultimately it seems to me this bill could go either way. and we will be watching. with this vote, decided on the basis of a single news story? could it be something that breaks over the weekend? something that carries the momentum? >> anything that moves a couple of hundred or a couple of thousand votes in any one of these battle ground states can determine the election. absolutely. my fear, and this is not as a pollster, but an american is that instead of one court case that we had in florida in 2000, we can have multiple court cases. this is just so close. gerri: i hope that is not the case. we have to go. thank you for being with us. we'll be right back. >> thank you.

's move over to ohio. this is a place where the obama campaign worked very hard on early voting in the african-american communities, especially in the cleveland area. you see cleveland, the cleveland suburbs, and to a lesser degree down here to the south in the akron area, people without power. how did they vote in 2008 and how do they tend to vote in presidential policies? across the top of the state, heavy democratic areas. our producer called out to cuyahoga today. early voting down today than it was four years ago. so you see some obvious immediate impacts. the question is, again, with a few more days to go, five more d days, can they get this fixed come election day? in the northern virginia suburbs, it tells the story. a lot of people out in the northern washington, d.c. area, fairfax county, arlington. you go back four years, you see all that blue. this is the area most critical to president obama. he has to win the state of virginia. again, when you call to these communities, they think they'll get it fixed in time for tuesday. >> john, when you talked to the two campaig
obama up in ohio still. >> yeah, i think obama does have a slight lead in ohio. >> even though the cincinnati inquirer poll just had it tied. >> i understand that. >> it's not rasmussen. which polls do we believe now? >> i understand that. do you want me to -- should we keep going on this or shy deal with andrew's question about the ground game? >> no, we better talk sandy i think. >> okay. sandy effect on the vote is entirely speculative. there are a lot of people yakking about it, but mostly making stuff up. i'll go to a couple things. first of all, obama is believed to have a somewhat more extensive ground game, he has more people on the ground. so in theory, he has more to disrupt. the president's schedule has him doing more events that will have to be canceled than romney. on the other hand, because romney is down a field goal and needs something to happen, the idea that sandy could flereeze things in place for a few days is not necessarily good for him because he had momentum after the first debate. the momentum seems to have died out. it's left him in a very competitive
, the gallup poll 41 and all for romney, and nobody trusts president obama on the economy. >> ohio and-- >> and investors don't trust him, because-- investors don't trust him he's already told businesses the tax rates are going to go up, especially on small businesses and secondly, obamacare, the single largest mandated labor cost hike in american history is about to clobber. >> unemployment is the best in years and-- >> the unemployment is the best it's been in years. >> down to 7.8%. >> that doesn't mean more people are working. >> and the numbers have shown the economy is getting better. >> the american people are more than the people you live with and hang out in your house. 7.8% is not real when it's 14.7%. and americans are working two and three jobs. americans are still looking for some kind of recovery and they're not with barack obama to get that recovery. >> the jobs that barack obama put forward and the republicans want to get him out of office. if the republicans sit down with the president in a bipartisan way and work on a jobs bill. >> federal government spending does not
ing average. and as for ohio this is another state where obama has never trailed and the real clear politics average -- >> the democrats' lead has shrunk. >> one at a time, one at a time. >> seven polls came out in the last 48 hours. >> but you're under 50. >> obama is leading in every single poll. >> i'll say it at this time. as listening as obama is under 50, then romney has a very good chance in these races. keith boykin, i will tell you this, it may be true that money can't buy love, but money certainly can help in these close political races. i've got to leave it there. keith, robert, jonathan, thank you, gentlemen. up next, even if you don't live in the northeast, this storm will still have a major impact on you. steve leishman is back after the break to help you prepare. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car.

that president obama has in ohio and to a certain degree when it comes to the storm, so there are political ramifications clearly, but also some practical ramifications as well, and as ana marie said a few moments ago, chaos looms, unfortunately. >> anne, in terms of the presidential prospective, president obama just finished talking with craig fugate and the director of fema, and we're waiting for the tape to turn around. we'll get comments in a moment. how much does this help him potentially? this platform for which he is the president of the united states during a really terrible time for about a sixth of the country? >> i think robert is right. he does have a chance to look presidential, although being the president, he gets to look presidential whenever he wants. he has to pay extra mind to the storm and be seen as actually presiding over it, doing his best to make sure he's on top of it. that's a lot to ask somebody a week and a couple of days just before the election. i think that probably the bigger danger, in addition to the ones that the other two mentioned, people simply aren't g
election day. another battleground state in the state of ohio this is a place where the obama campaign worked very hard in early voting in the african-american community in the cleveland area, right here, cuyahoga county here. i'll draw a big line, cleveland, the cleveland suburbs and to a lesser degree down here to the south in the akron area people without power, put it to the same test, how did they vote in 2008, you see some republicans in the more rural counties but across the top of the state the northern part of the state heavy democratic areas, our producer called out too cuyahoga today early voting down a bit today than it was four years ago so you see some obvious immediate impact. the question is again, with the few more days to go, five more days can they get this fixed come election day. one more quick example in the northern virginia suburbs and again to the naked eye it tells the story. still a lot of people out right on the northern washington d.c. area, right there, fairfax county, arlington, go back four years, you see all that blue, this is the area most critical to
leaving president obama among likely voters in the critical battleground state of ohio. this is a first in this race. it is a significant shift from just a week ago when the president governor romney were tied at 40%. in most polls, the president had been leading governor romney in ohio. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and also the host of the show "power play." chris, some events are being canceled because they are not being affected by hurricane sandy, but how many times have we talked about the likely voter polls, talking about how it will really matter or not romney loses ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without it. rasmussen came out with a poll showing that governor romney is taking the lead their. >> well, yes, here is the thing. we have seen all along that mitt romney could not quite close in ohio and he has continued to do better in places like florida and virginia. ohio has posed a difficulty, he couldn't close the gap with the president. what we have seen has been a slow-motion surge from mitt romney. it started after his first debate and has mo

, but frankly, what i find most amazing in ohio this year is the way the romney campaign is choosing to close out their campaign there. remember when mr. romney campaigned on that flat out lie that president obama's getting rid of a work requirement for welfare, even though president obama did no such thing? well, now mr. romney is back with a new ad in ohio with that same old lie about welfare. they brought it back for the end of the campaign. romney campaign sent senator norm coleman from minnesota to ohio to tell voters there that mitt romney had no intention of overturning roe versus wade even though mitt romney himself says he would do everything he could to overturn roe versus wade. he said if that happened be he would be delighted to sign a bill banning all abortion at the federal level. last week in ohio mr. romney made a mistake, an out and out gaffe. >> i saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, jeep, now owned by the italians, is thinking of moving all production to china. >> not true. totally false. jeep is not doing that. the day mitt romney told that
has begun and it has come down to ohio which president obama and mitt romney will visit six times in the last four days of the race. today, president obama will spend the entire day in ohio. but a look at the rest of the campaign schedule makes the buck eye state look like an airline hub for air force one, with ohio stops every day through election day. for his part, mitt romney is not only focusing on ohio but hoping to win over wisconsin, and looking to broaden the battleground map, campaigning in pennsylvania sunday, visiting new hampshire twice. the smallest swing state that may be edging in mr. romney's direction. in these frenetic final days, they're sharpening the closing argument to voters. mr. obama arguing for another four years. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> mr. romney calling himself the agent of change. >> this is no time for small measures. this is time for real change. when i am elected presiden
